※日本語版はコチラ!

Kitahiroshima-cho (formerly Chiyoda-cho), Yamagata-gun is known as Kagura (traditional masked dance) - oriented town. Mask master Kazunori Oka worked as a public employee there from 1985 to 1988. At that time, he learned how to make masks from a mask master (click here!).

After he repeated transferal several times, he finally retired on 2011. Then, he came back to his hometown, Innoshima and started his life as a mask master. He makes mainly three types of masks named “Soba”, “Beta” and “Shoki”. Those are derived from Betcha Festival in Onomichi. He also makes other standard as well as custom-made masks.

His masks have steric and thick shape. Those features give expressive face to his masks and are highly regarded.
